I got to the last stage w/ 3 remains and full fire power. 10 seconds in a pea-shooter hit me. I need to start a Fuck Hyper Duel thread.

Is Tiger heli and twin cobra the same game? no, different game at least arcade-wise. Twin Cobra=US version of Kyukyoku Tiger, with "respawn" instead of checkpoint system. Tiger Heli is totally different and older game. i think there may have been some mixing up of the title on the 8-bit h...

its ok, if you like rpg-elements (ie levelling up) in your beat em ups, which are difficult to understand for non-japanese. Pretty samey stage design, pretty long (seems you have the ability to choose multiple in-game routes though), then you reach the boss, who is some sort of mecha-robot-thingy (p...

There's no "region protection" for PCs... the only thing they can do is check your system language (which a handful of games do). Annoying, but you can just set it to Japanese. Thanks GP, i tried the Gunhound demo but strangely i am non-plussed whether i like it or not. Not particularly a...

id love to try this and Gunhound, but with money being tight at the moment i wouldnt want to drop 4800Y on a possibly-doujin quality game. 4800Y = £36, thats almost a full price Cave XBox release price!

A lot of people do rate G-Darius, though. Ive probably played it the least amount of time, just because it didnt gel with me personally.

i like the stages, just some of the bosses take too long to kill. and they just arent as spectacular as the game thinks they are.

Dunno, they seem hard but most games do at first, just takes practice and memory to work out a path through the stages. Use save states! Not as fun to play as Cave games i spose, and probably more masochistic what with unfair shots from the rear etc..

thats a great article youve translated GP. It does throw up some more questions, like why Uemura says stuff like "oh, it was easy porting those games to the Mega Drive, since thay had the same CPU (as the arcade game?)", and saying "the same team just basically directly ported from ar...

Hm, i dont know what you mean by ME being "compatible" with your video card, i used to use ME eons ago with my low res screens, all i did was set screen resolution within ME at 640 x 480, then you can set your video card to output RGB using Powerstrip. All you then need is a VGA-->RGB scar...

Try Gunhed on ME (horrible, graphics glitches), then on Ootake. Also, Rainbow Islands wouldnt run last time i tried on latest ME. Both these run perfect on Ootake. Also, Ootake just looks better IMO. Another also, ME hasnt been updated in ages :x

^^Thanks, just tried both the sequels :) I'd actually played Vendetta back in the day. Still think the original has something the others dont. You can see the Final Fight influence in the sequels, Crime Fighters stands on its own as an original IMO.

i think for me, Ootake looks better when youre using a straight pc--> vga connection. ME looks like shit when youre connecting this way, and seems to run a bit less smoothly. i remember when i had my pc connected to a crt through rgb, i thought ME was great. but ive got rid of my low-res crt screens...
